Families of victims of unsolved crimes in New Hampshire protest ‘inaction’ from the state

CONCORD, N.H. — Demanding answers, families, friends, and even survivors of unsolved crimes in New Hampshire marched on the state Attorney General’s office Tuesday, angry that their cases are still open.

In the parking lot, at the AG’s doorstep, they expressed frustration that calls are not answered, investigators move on, and they fear they may never get justice.

“Maura is still missing. It’s been 19 years. We just want a little support,” said Julie Murray.

Julie’s sister, Maura Murray, disappeared after a car crash in Haverhill, New Hampshire in 2004.

She has never been found.

“We feel like we’re just being ignored. That’s the bare minimum, to acknowledge we have tips or leads or a concern. The least that they could do is respond,” said Murray.

“I was seven months pregnant, and I was stabbed 27 times. And I survived. And then I found out I was stabbed by a serial killer,” said Jane Boroski, the only known survivor of the Connecticut River Valley Killer.

Boroski was attacked in 1988.

At least seven women were murdered in the case.

There has never been an arrest

“All we want is answers and some kind of communication,” said Boroski.

In another case, more recently in 2018 in Grafton, NH, the dismembered remains of Trish Haynes were found in a pond.

Her family is frustrated Trish’s killer is not caught.

“If that case cannot be solved here in the state of New Hampshire, then I don’t give any hope for any of the other cases,” said Valorie Haynes-Alvarez, Trish’s great-aunt.

Other cases represented at the rally included Tina and Bethany Sinclair, Roberta Miller, Carrie Moss, Jason Upton, and Denise Robert.

In a statement, NH AG John Formella said he supports these families, and this rally, pointing out that in 2022 his office solved 92.3 percent of that year’s homicides.

AG Formella did not attend this rally, but the head of the AG’s Criminal Justice Bureau which oversees the Cold Case Division, was here.

“I was listening to what you are saying, and you are heard,” said Matteson.
